Meat from a 3D printer - Are vegetarians saved?

Breakout Labs, eccentric billionaire Peter Thiel’s biotech foundation, announced an intruguing investment in a start-up that makes 3D printed meat. The company engineers tissues to create leather and edible meat, in a process that eliminates many of the negative environment effects associated with traditional livestock practices, according to a report by CNET. It uses animal stem cell tissues to create input material, and prints out meat that involves no harm to animals. It's also a process that should be more environmentally friendly than normal meat production. CNBC Small Business.
